Description

Destination M (formerly M Private Residences) is an equity destination club, in which the members join by buying one of the shares in the table below. The members own the club and have a management team that runs and operates the club for them. All the clubs properties are owned by the company in which the members buy shares, so the members initial fee has a good asset backing. The properties in the Destination M portfolio have been curated to provide members with memorable travel experiences. Factors they take into consideration include the location, seasonality, amenities such as golf and spa memberships, potential for appreciation, the overall 'wow' factor of the property and of course, the desires of their membership.

Holidays are about experiences, whether it's a wine-tasting tour in the finest wine country in the world, a shopping adventure in the most cosmopolitan cities, or lazy days with family on one of the world's most beautiful beaches. Note the shares are priced in Canadian $ in the table below.

The club homes vary from a 2 bedroom apartment in New York City to 4 bedroom, 5,000 sq. ft homes. Members can reserve homes up to 2 years in the future.

Unique Features

The club is structured as a non-profit, so all the dues simply cover the costs of running the club and maintaining the homes.

One nice perk is that any bookings within 30 days of travel do not count against a member's plan days.

The club is headquartered in Calgary, Alberta.
